Why is it so hard to set boundaries?  Oftentimes, it signifies a deeper value set. Once you start establishing healthy boundaries, you can expect others to react negatively. This is a sign that the boundary is necessary and that it's working effectively. It's also helpful to visualize your boundaries getting crossed and imagine how you'll address those situations. That way, when a moment like that arises, you’ll be able to handle it rationally versus emotionally.Employees who are the happiest and most productive are those who set boundaries. People who set limits gain respect because they show respect for themselves.“Having the courage to set boundaries is about having the courage to love ourselves, even when we risk disappointing others. “ Brene Brown Barry Forward suggests The Five Steps to Establishing Work Boundaries:Prioritize your valuesCommunicate your boundaries clearlyBring up a boundary or violation right awayFocus on concrete rather than personal explanationsBe ready for boundary breaches - have a game planDagmar Meachem on Boundaries: Trust your gutBe CourageousTake Personal ResponsibilityExplore Lack of Boundary MotivationPractice Reframing - to give you freedom to set the boundarySpeak up - make choice to do something rather than be a victimDagmar Meachem is an accredited Professional Certified Coach by Erickson Coaching International, Professional Certified Coach (PCC) by the International Coaching Federation and is EQ-i 2.0 Certified.  She provides one-one coaching, group coaching and custom designed facilitated workshops.

Just observe that this quality exists.Take responsibility – take ownership of knowing this quality may be holding you back from making decisions as a leader vs. a follower.Take action to make a change – start to make an uncomfortable decision.

Feedback.   Leadership Coach Dagmar Meachem joins me for a Courage Confab discussion on Feedback.  We look at creating a culture where feedback is welcomed, encouraged and trusted.  How to give good balanced feedback and strategies to incorporate feedback as a leader.Randall Stutman founder and co-head of the Leadership Practice  the Admired Leadership Institute states that Balanced Feedback requires a person to give both positive and negative feedback in an equally vivid, elaborate, and detailed manner.Radical Candor - 11 Ways to Get Feedback From Others: Tip 1: Have a go-to questionA question like, “Is there anything I could do or stop doing that would make it easier to work with me?”Tip 2: Embrace the discomfortAfter asking for feedback, stop talking and “embrace the discomfort.” Count to 7 and commit to allowing the other person to speak first. Tip 3: Listen with the intent to understand, not to respondDon’t interrupt or argue when someone gives you feedback. Just listen, focus on understanding what the person is telling you, and try to learn something from it.  Tip 4: Reward criticism to get more of itWhen someone provides feedback to you, treat it like a treasured gift! Tip 5: Ask for public criticismAnother way to show that you appreciate the criticism you receive is to ask those who are most comfortable criticizing you to give the same feedback in front of others. Tip 6: Criticize yourself in publicCriticizing yourself in public is a great way to show that you feel comfortable acknowledging that you aren’t perfect, that you have room for improvement.Tip 7: Call out body languageEven if people aren’t telling you what they really think with their words, their body language may still be sending a more candid message. Tip 8: Relish being wrongShow people that you are happy when they prove you wrong. Tip 9: Show that you careWhen you show you care, you build a relationship and you build trust. People will stop seeing you as the “jerk in charge” and assuming the worst. Tip 10: Don’t try to change your styleFigure out how to use your personal style, be it very vocal or very quiet, tough or gentle, approachable or intimidating, to invite criticism of yourself, to remind people that you want to be challenged.  Tip 11: Get theatricalSometimes you have to be really over the top to get feedback.

Accountability.  What does it mean to be accountable?  To ourselves, to our teams, to our company and organization.  Today Leadership Coach Dagmar Meachem joins me for what we have dubbed The Courage Confab for a discussion on Accountability.  Dagmar and I take a deep dive into what it takes to hold ourselves accountable, hold others accountable and create a space where accountability lives in our work, our lives and in all the activities and relationships we are involved with.  On this episode we unpack the entire notion of being accountable and discuss strategies to bring accountability into our work and our lives.As Dagmar says, our hope with the Courage Confab is to lean in and discuss some of those sticky conversations that are typically uncomfortable for leaders, business owners, teams and individuals to have.  Our aim is to tackle things that are sometimes difficult to crack open, and have an open and honest conversation about them.  On this episode we explore Accountability.  Dagmar Meachem is an accredited Professional Certified Coach by Erickson Coaching International, Professional Certified Coach (PCC) by the International Coaching Federation and is EQ-i 2.0 Certified.  She provides one-one coaching, group coaching and custom designed facilitated workshops.

Barrie Street.  "I am 84 and feel 48. I’m blessed to have a passion for fitness, which I would love to spread in my blog Over50andFit.ca.  I would also be delighted to reach folks who are less than 50. The message I am trying to impart is that ANYONE of ANY AGE can be fit and it is NEVER too late to start. I believe - indeed I know - that fitness can be inextricably woven into our fabric."Teaching has been one of my major passions, mainly involved at the secondary school level.I am entering my 57th year of teaching Math with the same passion as when I began. Spending so much time with young people – whether teaching or coaching them soccer, field hockey, tennis, cross-country running, cricket or ping pong – has kept me young in mind. Young people will always remain the back-bone of society and to help them grow and mature has always been a privilege.Travelling has occupied a great deal of my leisure time, having visited some 50 countries – many  of which we erroneously call Third World nations – sharing their cultures and learning to appreciate their diverse lifestyles. Also learning to acknowledge how gracious and happy they are, despite often living in destitute conditions and being without the basic essentials of life. I have learned far more from them about the true values of life than I have from our own materialistic society. I have often encouraged my students to travel and acquire a better understanding of life.Volunteering has probably brought me the most satisfaction. I have been able to teach teachers in Ethiopia, Zimbabwe and Jamaica and also teach children in Guatemala and Costa Rica. I have come away from all these experiences more enriched. Helping to build a village for abandoned children in Costa Rica 40 years ago – one of the boys I found living in a cardboard box on the street still keeps in touch with me – reminded me of my own childhood. My parents abandoned me when I was 6 and this experience gave me a compassion and understanding which otherwise I would never have acquired. Another exciting project was collecting a mountain of soccer equipment here in Vancouver – all of which would have been consigned to the garbage dump – and delivering it to a black South African township. This was gold to the kids.Sports and exercise have brought me colossal fitness and health. I played team sports from the age of 10 to my mid-forties and then I began running, culminating in a marathon within a year. I was hooked. At 50, I graduated to triathlons and competed in my first Ironman, also within a year. From then on, I have been running, playing tennis and climbing our local iconic mountain – the Grouse Grind – which I have completed more than 2000 times.Barrie Street's blog can be found at www.Over50andFit.ca
